Default RE: 500 vs. 870

I personally like the 870 even with its draw backs. Yet if you like the 500 by all means use it, although changing a rifled barrels length is not advised. It will often end with low accuracy and decreased velocity on exit. Your best bet on getting a shorter barrel is to buy one. That way the barrel is rifled properly and will not result in a huge loss of velocity.
